남미이야기 South America

콜롬비아부터 From Colombia

I came back to South America in ten years.

Medellin in Colombia

Bogota in Colombia

A life in Quito for 2 months

I want to say too much but ....
I don't say any more for next time.

No soy de aqui, ni soy de alla.

Peru, Mancora

Piura in Peru

  가자! 아마존의 심장으로! 

Heading for Amazon !

I took the cargo boat to get in a heart of Amazon.
That's the cheapest way for Iquitos.
Iquitos is the largest city in Perubian Amazon.
It takes about 2 nights 3 days by boat from Yurimaguas to Iquitos.
But I stayed 1 more night on the boat because my boat arrived in Iquitos around mid night.
Thanks to late arrival, I could enjoyed enough sunset and sunrise on Amazon river.
Normally  we need to buy own hammock for sleeping but I didn't.
I bring my mosquito net wherever I travel. And I fixed it on the floor.
I made my new house named ' Mi casa'. That's my style, Kangnam style.
I met so many local people and shared lots of things with open mind.
I think this is Cruise tour for real backpacker.

Kids on the boat in Amazon

Niños en lancha

Leaving Amazon

It was the last night in Manaus Brasil.
I went to Amazon Theatre to get free performance.
I enjoyed classical music, even it was hard to understand.
I thought my past traveling while they were playing.
Sorry for them, it was a really good place to think.
I asked by myself.
Have you enjoyed your traveling life without regrets.
Absolutely not, I always regret my choice.
That is why I am still traveling to get something.

I am going to Boa Vista to get in Guyana and Surinam, French Guiana.
These countries are very strange to me.
I heard bad information about those countries.
I think almost backpackers don't like expensive or dangerous country.
But those countries have both.
I don't want to choose another way, It is too late to come back.
I don't want to take flight or boat. I already spent about 15 days on the boat, that is enough.
Only one way I have to pass over the frontier to go overland.
I try to find good points on the sunny side.
Those countries create a unique culture that was mixed with Africa Asia India Europe.
I hope I meet good local people.

Ok, make me refresh, it is going to be created new challenges.

Finally I arrived in Suriname. I will go back to Brasil to get in Venezuela.

I got back to Lima in ten years

Cuzco in Peru

Leaving Cusco

I spent here for three week. I met many Korean travelers compared past 6 months.
Because I stayed very favorite hostel to Korean tourist, named El Puma Hostal.
When I arrived in Cusco, the weather is not so good, almost cloudy and rainy days.
I couldn't do anything, actually I didn't want to do anything, the weather as an excuse.
I tried to cook some Korean foods, even those are not original ingredients.
I shared and enjoyed with my Korean friends, as a result I was drunken every each day.
I already went throught 2 weeks when alcohol awoke in Cusco.
I didn't go to Machu Picchu. Almost tourist come here to go there. I went there ten years ago.
I came here to take a break, having a good rest is a kind of traveling for long term tourist.
But having a alcohol is not a good rest.
I decided to move another place, I found the cheapest single room in Cusco.
I foucused on writing for long time, the weather is getting better.
Finally I could be absorbed in this city and then I spent 1 more week in Cusco.
Tonight I will take bus for La Paz, Bolivia.
Whenver I leave some place, I feel somthing lost. But I don't know what I lost, exactly.
Maybe, it may be the rest of my time what also can not change on the planet Earth.
